On Thursday night, October 19th, the Town Board held a Public Hearing on the 2018 Budget which will provide the services needed to the Webster taxpayer in the coming year.
A copy of the complete 2018 proposed budget, along with a side-by-side comparison of the 2017 budget, was sent by the Webster Herald to all households in Webster on October 12th. The Webster Town Board prides itself on giving out as much information as we can to the residents on the budget process so that they can make a well informed decision on whether or not the Town Board is spending their taxpayer dollars wisely.
The public hearing was open to all residents to ask questions or voice their concerns, and there was only one person who took that opportunity to ask about funding for the Animal Control Officer. The money in that budget line had been reduced after our Animal Control Officer retired in July, 2017.
The next step in the process will be the adoption of the Webster 2018 Budget which will take place on Thursday, November 2, 2017 in the Town Board room located in the Van Ingen Court Building (the building with the blue roof). Residents are again encouraged to attend and make comments on the budget, if they would like, before the Town Board takes up passage of this budget.
Once again, I would like to thank the Department Heads that guide our departments for the outstanding job they did in developing a budget that will continue to serve the Webster residents. I also would like to thank the members of the town board, Deputy Supervisor Patti Cataldi, Council Members Barry Deane, Alecia Mazzo and Bill Abbott for their time and dedication for building a fiscally reasonable budget for the Webster residents.
As always, if you have any questions about your town government, please feel free to contact me during regular business hours at (585) 872-7068; or email me anytime at email@example.com
